Hot fixes

Cirrus Assessment Support Team -

Information on all our deployments

Cirrus informs it's customers via our Releases section. If you want to be informed about all our regular releases, please click 'Follow > New articles and comments' on our Releases section.

Please note that items listed in an announcement for a release can be subject to change. We are working very hard to get all this great stuff out to you. However, each item goes through our rigorous manual and automated testing and needs to get a final 'green light' to be included. Our announcements serve to give you a heads up. When applicable we can also offer pre-testing for high-impact releases. 

Hot fixes

Some times we need to do what is called a hot-fix: an update to our production environment because of a pressing issue. In general these cannot be announced and will not affect all users of Cirrus in equal measure - which is why they are not relevant to all that are interested in our general releases / updates.

We will mention these hot-fixes in comments to this page with a very brief description and a reference number. Hot-fixes are of course also tested manually and automatically by us by the way. 

You can click 'Follow > New articles and comments' on this page (the one you are reading now) to get informed about these.

If you want more information on our processes, please do not hesitate to contact us!

The Cirrus Assessment Team.
